Very early in the programs I typed out in that way on my ZX-81 & later on the C=64, were disassembler programs so a) I could see why the other programs weren't running & b) Modify some software to support my printer.

In the late 70s I worked on a Compupro. Z80 cpu, and 64 k of ram!!! Running CP/M 2.2. Software I used: dBase II, Supercalc, and Wordstar. Those were the days. Still get nightmares about: Bdos Error on A: The "famous" error code.... Did some Mbasic an later on tried Turbo pascal. But then MicroSoft killed CP/M. Bought myselfs a ZX80 later.
at the office they went to PC/MSDos. Took me about 3 years before I had a PC compatible(El Cheapo) at home. Started with Windows 2.03 till Windows 10. Got rid of it somewhere in october last year. So here I am. Good old days.... :-)
Who is General Failure? And why is he reading my hard disk???
